There is a great atmosphere within the training, there is a good group effect, motivation and above all a closeness with the coaches of the Pro Outdoor Academy.
From October, we followed an intense physical preparation while waiting to be able to ski. [The Covid 19 health crisis prevented the opening of ski resorts this winter. In December, only FFS licensees were allowed to continue their training in part of the ski areas, editor's note]. In December we started skiing, hard until the end of March. We did a lot of slalom during the whole ski preparation. I would also add that the theoretical courses we took were very beneficial to us. They gave us the basics of mid-mountain. It was really good to have this mix between theory and practice. Mental preparation was also an important factor in the success of my training. Mentally and physically we were ready to pass the technical test and give our best.
The coaches and Douglas Favre [General Manager of Evolution 2 Tignes and Val d'Isère, editor's note] were invested in our preparation. They were happy for us and pushed us to push ourselves throughout the season to get our Technical Test.
